Great but wish it was more extensive

Really impressive, easy to use system and excellent value. You'll probably have to take other forms of transport to get to it however.

The best and cheapest way to get around in Bangkok is using the BTS. I never drive my car in Bangkok when I visit as it is so convenient to use the BTS and taxis.

Definitely one of the easiest ways to travel throughout the city. Cheap, efficient, and fast. Do be aware the during rush hour times (morning 7:30 to about 9:30, and evening especially 4:30 to about 8:30) the BTS can be very crowded depending on the day and time of year. Crowded as in packing people in as much as possible. Although... More

It is really easy to use - you can get cards and load them so you don't have to have exact change. I found this to be a better way to travel over cab or tuk. Very clean and safe too.

I definitely recommend using the BTS if you're in Bangkok. Smooth, clean trains that are easy to navigate. They even have a ticket window if you want to speak to a person to buy your tickets. Also a reasonable price!

When you are in Bangkok you will never want to drive. It would be like trying to drive in New York or Hong Kong. Nuts. Bangkok has come a long way and they now have something similar to the light rail way that many big cities are using. It's fast, comfortable and very reasonable priced. I highly recommend it. Otherwise... More

One of the things that really surprised when I first landed in Thailand and Bangkok specifically is the TRAFFIC! It is a different kind of congestion compared to American traffic but it is every bit as time consuming as any major US metropolitan (NYC, LA, Chicago, etc.) maybe moreso. So the BTS (in conjunction with the MRT) is ESSENTIAL for... More

Fast and convenient to travel around Bangkok city, no traffic jam and easier to control the timing. Some stations do not have escalators. Getting a Rabbit Card is better as no need to queue for exchange for coins to buy tickets.

Unlike the MRT (platforms are air-conditioned), BTS is above ground, and you can literally melt waiting for the train during the hot months. That said, for someone who does not speak the local language and hates being stuck in traffic jams, even the BTS is better than a taxi. It is timely and inexpensive. I highly recommend that you get... More
